So at lunch today he went to a supply house where we buy our material. He sees this mexican kid loading the truck wrong and tells him "Im not OSHA or your boss but you are loading the truck wrong and someone could get hurt." He gets back and tells me about his expierence over there and about the material so on and so forth.

A newfangled extravagance is spreading amongst the music-lover youngsters of New York, which, after invading America, is sure to conquer the whole world. Ears becoming pointed as a result of plastic surgery not only enhance the attractiveness of the face, but also improve the experience of listening to music.

The creator of this operation is a Hungarian plastic surgeon, Dr. Lajos Nagy, who is currently practicing in New York, and who is soon going to introduce his new method the first time in Europe, in Hungary. Make your hearing perfect! Accentuate your personality!

Do rounded ears mean an evolutionary impasse?

It is a well-known fact that predators, and a lot of other mammals for which a keen sense of hearing is indispensable for staying alive, have pointed ears.

The ears of the primates, however, have „retrograded” during the course of evolution, and have become rounded. This is not, of course, the only factor facilitating the gradual blunting of our sense of hearing, although, according to certain researches, it surely has contributed to the process.

The memory of our once pointed ears can still be traced in our genes. A proof of this is, for example, the so-called Darwin-tubercle (Darwin’s Ear Point) discernible on the pinnae of a lot of people, which is the remainder of the point of the once beastlike ears.
Why are pointed ears more sensitive?

One of its reasons is rather simple: pointed ears focus sounds in a better way, which, in the case of animals, is supplemented by the fact that they can orientate themselves towards the source of sounds without turning their heads, by moving only their ears.

The other reason is the own frequency of the pinnae, as being solid objects themselves, which changes together with their shape. Pointed ears resonate with sounds at the frequency of around 8 kHz, thus they amplify sharp sounds instead of the intermediate frequencies. This is the reason why, amongst other things, dogs are sensitive to ultrasonic sounds, which are imperceptible for human ears.

Although turning the pinnae still remains impossible for human beings according to its anatomic features, the advantages of pointed ears can be enjoyed once again with the help of a simple, routine operation.

Amy, you're awesome, but using the word "zapped" in a technology context is just about the #1 red flag of low tech skillz. I know that this might well be true of you and you might not personally care, but I'd take care not to say it in the company of a tech person who is dealing with your problem. The reason for this is that after they hear that, they basically won't listen to anything you say because tech people, much like music people, are by and large elitist jerks.

Now that that's out of the way, there shouldn't be a reason for all your songs to be deleted off of the iPod so long as you set it to manual updating (you do that by selecting the iPod in the menu bar on the left side)- once you have that set, you just drag the files/playlists you want onto the iPod icon (the one on the left) and it transfers them to the iPod. Easy as one of Alma's pies.

If you have your iPod set to automatic updating, which I don't personally understand or agree with, all you have to do is add all the songs you want into the playlist/s that you've selected to automatically update to the iPod, and not delete any of the other songs in that playlist, as it will always update the iPod to mirror the exact contents of the playlist/s that are selected.

If I had to guess what happened, I'd guess that you've got your iPod set to update automatically and your husband, not understanding that the iPod just mirrors the auto-updating playlist, deleted all of the songs out of that playlist and added In Rainbows, thus making it so that you have In Rainbows and only In Rainbows on your iPod. If that's the case, you'll have to re-add the other songs to the auto-updating playlist/s on your computer so that they'll transfer the next time you connect your iPod.

Sorry that was so long... I could have shown you all that in about 30 seconds, but I'm about 3,000 miles and change from being able to do that.

“I was worried a little though when I saw they found a cabbage patch doll on

SO, when you're trying to grasp how hot that Red Savina is at 500,000 Scoville units, think of this: If you took a beer can full of Red Savina pepper extract and poured it into a large vat (it must be a very large vat), it would take 500,001 beers to dilute the extract to the point where there was no heat tasted. A bit mind boggling, isn't it

You buy some mouse traps, you set them. You go to bed. Back in Jersey we used to get mice every year around October/November when it would get cold and all the mice in the woods would come foraging indoors. You just throw cheese or peanut butter on some traps (get the real kind with an unpleasant looking metal bar to break their little mousey spines) and set them in the nooks and crannies of your kitchen where there's mouse shit. Done and done.

It was later in January. I think the announcement came on a Sunday night. First there was an LA Times article. Then the poster.

If you go down to the board stats it says when the most people ever were online. I'm willing to guess that was the day they released the lineup.

Another MLS Cup for the ex-San Jose Earthquakes, and another tough loss for New England. I feel bad for them. And I'm upset that the ex-Earthquakes have another title and we get an expansion team to replace them next year. Booooo.

I think that was when people got the presale link email, but i could be wrong.

Edit - Actually, it says 22nd was the busiest - I got my presale tix on the 20th Jan - I think the KROQ presale went live on the 22nd.

I seem to remember the lineup being right at the end of Jan

I read in the paper that Bonds was charged with perjury. did Tom know this already or will he adjust those figures after i say this?


Tom is very well-informed, because old people watch the news before they go to bed.

I heard it on the radio coming home from work on Thursday. so yes I already knew it. I don't ever "watch the news".

My right eye hurts really bad. Like really bad. It feels like I have something in it, but I've checked and flushed it with water, and found nothing. Could it be just scratched? It hurts, and it's causing snot to pour out of me as well, which is weird and annoying.

GO TO THE DOCTOR.

It could be something lodged in your eye, or an infection of some sort, especially if it's making your nose run. Your body is trying to get rid of something and if you can't see what it is, take caution and gooooo noooowww.

Is it red? It could be pink eye.

yeah, but I don't think it would make his nose run or be so painful if it were pink eye. I mean it could happen but it'd be unlikely.

It's not pink eye....and maybe I was exaggerating the 'hurts really bad' a little bit, but it does sting, and it's all bloodshot. But i've looked to see if it's anything (eyelash, whatever) and can't find anything, so I'm thinking I got something in my eye earlier today, rubbed it and got it out, but scratched my eye in the process.

thefunkylama
11-19-2007, 06:07 PM
well if the pain is bearable, then yeah, that makes sense. i mean the symptoms you described are indicative of the eye trying to get rid of something, and if you scratched you eye and it hurts really really bad then you can go to the doctor and they'll check it out. They can at least give you drops to help the pain, you know? but if the pain isn't that bad then maybe just rest it, and don't rub your eye. If it gets any worse, then go see the doc before it gets infected.

Sometime this evening someone left a bag on our doorstep that, upon investigation, contained:


One carton of yoghurt
One rasher of raw bacon
A pie tin
and a half-empty jar of peaches.


There was no explanation. Those peaches made me laugh until I cried.

A rasher? Was the bag left behind from the 1890s?

WTF is a rasher?

My daughter scratched her cornea once. The eye doctor told me that it's incredibly painful, but that the cornea is the fastest healing part of the entire body-so if you did scratch it, it should be feeling better pretty damn quick.

There is nothing wrong with a good rasher of bacon or two (unless it's been left on your doorstep), although all the bacon i've had in the US looks like it's been deep fried.

Where's my cup of earl grey? Ah, there it is, next to my monocle.

There's a store called Tea and Crumpets downtown, and I got really excited when they were opening and all you could see was the sign. I thought it was going to be a teahouse, but it turned out to be a sub-par antique store.

Menik - I posit that your eye condition was a direct result of you gazing at the picture directly above your post.

They sell sub-par antiques to sub-par antique collectors. And there's not a crumpet in sight. Not one.

Neil Diamond reveals identity of 'Sweet Caroline'

By Sandy Cohen, Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Neil Diamond held onto the secret for decades, but he has finally revealed that President Kennedy's daughter was the inspiration for his smash hit Sweet Caroline.

"I've never discussed it with anybody before — intentionally," the 66-year-old singer-songwriter told The Associated Press on Monday during a break from recording. "I thought maybe I would tell it to Caroline when I met her someday."

He got his chance last week when he performed the song via satellite at Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg's 50th birthday party.

Diamond was a "young, broke songwriter" when a photo of the president's daughter in a news magazine caught his eye.

"It was a picture of a little girl dressed to the nines in her riding gear, next to her pony," Diamond recalled. "It was such an innocent, wonderful picture, I immediately felt there was a song in there."

Years later, holed up in a hotel in Memphis, he would write the words and music in less then an hour.
